How to publish in this journal


2D Materials aims to curate the most significant and cutting-edge research being undertaken in the field of 2D materials science and engineering. Serving an expanding multidisciplinary community of researchers and technologists, our goal is to develop a selective journal dedicated to bringing together the most important new results and perspectives from across the discipline. Submissions should be essential reading for a particular sub-field, but should also be of multidisciplinary interest to the wider community, with the expectation that published work will have significant impact. Submissions that do not meet 2DM's strict acceptance criteria may be transferred at the discretion of the journal's editors (with author approval) to other relevant journals in the IOP portfolio, for further consideration. 2D Materials is a multidisciplinary journal devoted to publishing original research of the highest quality and impact covering all aspects of two-dimensional materials, including fundamental properties (experiments, theory and simulations), novel applications (electrical, mechanical, chemical and biomedical) and synthesis/fabrication techniques. Specific materials of interest will include (but are not limited to): Graphene and graphene-derived materials (such as graphene oxides, graphene quantum dots etc) Silicene and germanene/silicane and germanane Boron nitride Transition metal dichalcogenides 2D topological insulators Complex oxides Composite materials Other novel 2D layered structures In addition to publishing research articles that report urgent breakthrough results of significant importance to the field of two-dimensional materials, 2D Materials also publishes Perspectives and invited-only Topical Reviews on themes of particular current interest to the community.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
